Not one of the best Legends books and honestly doesn't really feel like it fits with the rest of the series primarily because, it uses a lot of vocabulary that isn't seen elsewhere in Star Wars novels, such as referring to the Chief of State as "President".
The actual plot line is pretty interesting, as there is a large amount of political background throughout the novel and a larger emphasis on military strategy and tactics. It without a doubt leans more towards the Sci-Fi end of the Star Wars spectrum, rather than the more fantasy take that books such as Planet of Twilight delve into it.
Overall it's not bad, Anthony Heald isn't the best Star Wars narrator by any means but he's passable. The abridging was fine, but like always I wish it was just the full book.
Overall a 3/5. If you're trying to push through as much of the mainline post-ROTJ Star Wars Legends novels as you can like I am, than it's at least worth a look.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Not a Star Wars fan.
Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Kube-McDowell again?
What does Anthony Heald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Good job on multiple characters. Not perfect, but good discernment between characters.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Three nearly completely disconnected story lines. These were also very short books. It should be one book. Don't waste your credits.
